For folks who know me, I am always cold…In my office in Bombay, I used to wear a jacket, a shawl and even a monkey cap at times in April and May because the temperature used to be kept so low in the office! The AC control person used to recognise my voice everytime I would call up and crib
When we came to Tasmania in January end, everyone told me ‘Don’t get used to this weather’ (Honestly I used to wear jackets even then!)
And then daylights savings ended. But I still was not so much affected because I still wearing a t shirt and a jacket ALL THE TIME.
Till it was May. The hottest month in India. BUT…gosh…the cold in Tasmania just caught me unawares. I moved from 2 layers to 5 layers. Since our house does not have central heating, I still wear 5 layers. Any attempts to start the fireplace have been a flop till date. I have read manuals, gone in detail over the internet, followed the husband’s instructions step by step and yet….no fire for more than 20 minutes. How, mom, how asks my OO. I dont know!!!
The winters will be challenge for a person like me but the warmth of the people will more than make up for the cold
Surprisingly both my girls seems to be born Tasmanians They have adjusted so well to the winter that it really surprises me. Both move around in t shirts even in 10 degrees and keep removing their jackets saying they are hot!
Guess kids adjust anywhere eh?
